The technical term used is συνθύται, synthytai. 22 male members are listed, all with patronymics and no ethnics, indicating that they all are citizens. Several names, such as Πτωΐλλει, Ptoilei,
Ἱσμεινίας, Hismeinias, and Ἀσωπόδωρος, Asopodoros, bear a significant local Boiotian colour (see Marchand 2011).
|i.||Number||22 (the dedication is complete, but this does not necessarily mean that this is the total number of members)|
|Note||The presence of patronymics indicates that we are dealing with citizens.|
|iv.||Status||Citizens of Thebes given the presence of patronymics and absence of ethnics.|
|iii.||Worship||Dedication of a statue of Athena. The sculptor is Lysistratos of Athens (l. 13).|
|Deities worshipped||Athena with an epithet starting with lambda. Schachter (SEG 31: 497(2)) suggests Athena Longatis, and points to the similarity of the inscription with IG VII 553 from Tanagra.|
|ii.||Poland concordance||Poland B 40|
